Course content

his Masters extends your knowledge of IT networks and provides hands-on training in telephony and high-speed data services. This will equip you for well-paid roles as a specialist telecommunications engineer, as well as for more general roles in developing network systems.

Modern telecommunication services rely heavily on network technology and, consistent with this, there is a high level of overlap between this course and Network Systems MSc. However, this course is distinctive because it includes a module on ‘Digital Telephony’. In addition, your Masters project will be on a topic that is specifically related to telecommunications.
